I have really bad eczema, but corticosteroids aren't helping. What should I do?

I have really bad eczema, but corticosteroids aren't helping. What should I do? Topic: case study search
July 18, 2019 / By Nowell
Question: I tried searching for natural remedies and I see stuff about something called calendula, as well as things such as moisturizing. I don't know what calendula is or where to get it and I've done most other "preventative" stuff and frankly it hasn't helped. I've got some REALLY bad eczema. Can someone help me and give me some ideas?

Hi there! Well if preventative measures don't help, then you've definitely got a bad case! Mine was fixed with prevention, but my brother had it more severe than I did and searched for all sorts of stuff. He used all the steroids and prescription creams and developed some skin problems such as stretch marks, thinning, and other strange reactions. Not good! We finally got his to go away with this product that we heard about on craigslist -- the company who makes it was doing some scientific studies and so we decided to test it. Product is called Rash Relief and it is now available for purchase at http://www.rashrelief.net -- we keep some on hand for when my brother breaks out.

Landon Originally Answered: Has anyone tried using California Baby Product for ECZEMA RASH ON THE FACE?
I just bought the California baby for my children as they got a real bad rash from baby oil, and its working great, its very smooth and feels soft, and has helped them both. You could also try the Aquafor at night, its very greasy but works perfectly. Thanks for the heads up on SLS, I will watch out for that one, I am staying clear of anything with Paraben...

Hi Natalie Calendula is a kind of marigold oil and it tend to be used a lot in nappy rash treatments. We do several creams with calendula in at the The Apothecary but I haven't had time to post most of them up yet, except one called the marigold balm. This has calendula both essential and carrier oils and also another type of marigold called Tagetes. We also do another treatment called eczema ointment with geranium which I swear by. If you need any help choosing which one to have, just pick up the phone to my mum Jill Bruce-Cook who makes the creams. The numbers on the site. Let me know if you need any more help.

You can start each session off with singing songs. Sit in a circle and let each child pick one song to sing. if they have trouble deciding you can suggest a few for them to pick from. Play a game at each session, hide and seek, show and tell...you can have them bring something from home having to do with saftey, or not and talk about it. You can give a project to them to do at home with their family on saftey and they can talk about it in class. Have them draw a picture of a saftey thing and they can explain their picutre. they can write a sentence explaining what they drew...if they can write. Just be fun and do fun things, it takes a while for some kids to warm up. Before you know it especially in a small group you will have little chatter boxes. Give a sticker or a stamp on their hand at the end of each class.

Make up educational scenarios for them. Like, ask them: "If there was a fire in their house, what's the first thing they do?" "What number do they call to reach the fire department?" "Is it okay to call the fire department if there is not a fire?" You can make it into a game, so whoever answers the question correctly, wins a prize or a piece of candy. You could even call a local fire department and see if they could have an off-duty or volunteer firefighter to come speak to the kids. They do it all the time! As far as bike safety, you could do a skit. Pretend you're going out to ride your bike and "forget" to put your helmet on, and see if anybody catches your mistake. Fall over and then ask them what you do next. Same thing as before, whoever answers correctly, gets a prize. Kids will do anything to get a prize!
